Python is currently one of the most popular and in-demand programming languages.

How popular? 

Well, Google, YouTube, Dropbox, Netflix, and other web giants use Python, partially or exclusively, to develop and maintain their apps, services, client and server software, and so on. 

In most cases, you go for hiring Python engineers to write server-side code that will make your website part of the internet. 

But, using Python for web development is just one of its many possible applications. Python app development and Python game development are also a thing. Python is great for machine learning, network programming, data science, and AI research.

When hiring a Python application developer, the biggest challenge is finding a dedicated, skilled developer who won’t ruin your startup’s budget. Recruiters tend to spend weeks looking for the right dev. 

But, the truth is that often you cannot afford to wait. You need a developer here and now.

Thank God there is Lemon.io. We already have what you need. Just click that button and find the best Python programmers for hire.

For your convenience, we’ve structured the page so that you can easily navigate between its sections. Just use this table of contents:




  • Debugging, optimization, and maintenance. Because why hire a development company for tasks like that?
  • Writing efficient and reusable code (and testing it, of course)
  • Developing server-side platforms
  • Implementing data protection and security measures
  • Integrating elements developed by the front-end team with server-side logic
  • Setting up and working with databases
  • Improving the functionality of already existing systems

If you want to research the market for remote Python jobs, you have three options.



In-house developers

It’s always great to have everything under control. With all your developers gathered in one place, you can definitely monitor and coordinate their work process more efficiently. The two major drawbacks, however, are:

  • Get ready to pay for everything. We mean taxes, salaries, insurance payments, office rent, etc. In-house employees are costly.
  • You will need a tech-savvy recruiter who knows everything about back-end development and how to test Python developers and verify their skills. It can simplify the recruiting process if you already have backend devs among your staff. But, if you are a startup about to hire Python developers for the first time, things can be tricky.

Development companies

  • This is for people who don’t want to trouble themselves with the recruitment ordeal. You call the guys and tell them what you need; they do everything. Development agencies usually employ specialists of all possible profiles, so they can get you through all stages of the development process.
  • The only drawback here is the price. You’re hiring an IT company; it’s never cheap.

So, is there a better way to find Python software development gurus without robbing the bank?

We say, “Yes.”


Now, as controversial as it may sound, remote programmers can be the best choice when it comes to hiring Python developers.

You’ve probably heard horror stories about ghosting contractors who abandon the project in the middle of the work process. Or about scammers who vanish into nothingness as soon as they receive your prepayment. And now, you think that it is safer and more reliable to hire a Python programmer who is certified and checked rather than a stranger from the internet.

And you are right. The biggest problem of all the crowdsourcing marketplaces is the impossibility of ensuring that a hired dev is a professional, not a newbie or a scammer. How can you be sure that a Python engineer is who he says he is? 

But here is the thing: we aren’t talking about regular online marketplaces here. We are talking about platforms that search out and handpick only the best of the best remote developers. Hiring a Python developer is no longer a gamble.

This small detail changes everything.

Turns out there are trustworthy alternatives to crowdsoursing platfroms, after all. Alternatives are reliable, safe, and can deliver work of impressive quality. Platforms that accommodate Python developers with impressive skill sets.

Skill sets at your disposal

Vetting platforms that test Python developers make sure that:

  • They are experienced with Django and Flask, and are familiar with event-driven programming
  • They also know about Python’s potential for machine learning, and actively explore this area
  • They have an understanding of the server-side templating languages such as Jinja, Kid, or Mako
  • They are familiar with the concepts of OOP (object-oriented programming)
  • They possess at least some experience with MVC and MVT architectures
  • They actively use code versioning tools such as Git or SVN
  • Good back-end developers also understand the basics of HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript
  • They are great at communication, and their English language skills don’t make you cringe.
  • They know how to work with ORM (Object Relational Mapper) libraries

Now, you might say that every skilled Python programmer should be able to do that. So, why specifically hire remote Python developers?

There are three major reasons for this:


Lower prices

Hiring a remote developer is usually more cost-effective. You can hire a senior Python coder for your projects from an Eastern European country and save a significant amount of money.


Fast communication

You can communicate all the project details, requirements, and changes directly to the developer you hired. There is no more bureaucracy involved. Python application developer will be able to answer your questions right away and consistently update you on the status of your projects. That is why hiring a remote engineer can be the best solution for your startup.


High quality work

If hired from the proper places (we’ll cover that later), remote Python developers can be as trustworthy and reliable as those who work for development companies charging you for every breath you take in their presence.

Eastern European engineers have been ranking top 10 in the world’s best developers list for years now. They fill the demand with the highest quality service for many companies in the States and Western Europe.

Obviously, you can’t hire a Python programmer from just any platform and hope their background includes all of the skills listed above. As we said, there are places where only the best Python devs dwell. And here is the list of places where you can find them.


The cheapest solutions are not always the best

When it comes to low prices for web and software development, the first thought that comes to the mind of an average customer is probably, «Indian developers.» Indeed, freelancers from this region charge significantly less for their services than their western colleagues. If you compare the hourly rates of a developer from the United States and from India, the difference will shock you. Sometimes, the price an Indian developer is ready to work for can be 10 times lower!


422,681 rupees can look solid, but if you convert them to US dollars, you’ll see that you can hire an average Python developer from India for only $5,763 per year!


And this would be great news… But, there’s always a but, as you know.

People who have worked with Indian developers tend to have controversial experiences. Some are left completely satisfied with the quality of the work done, whereas others are underwhelmed at best. A gamble that should not be a part of Python software development.

We are not saying that Indian developers are unskilled. We mean that you should be ready to pay for quality, regardless of the country your developer comes from.


Should you hire Python developers in the US or Europe?

Yes, if you want to find a Python developer who can speak decent English and possess Python knowledge beyond the “Python for Dummies” textbook. On the other hand, Python developer salaries in the United States or Europe can hit the ceiling sometimes. So, if your budget is tight, perhaps you shouldn’t.


As you can see, an average Python programmer’s salary is rather high.

But isn’t there a reasonable alternative? There should be some sort of a golden mean, high-quality code in Python for a reasonable price. A way to hire Python remote developer without breaking the bank?

Fortunately, there is.


The ideal price-quality solution for you

If you check out our article about the top 7 reasons to hire Ukrainian developers, you will know why customers from many countries are giving more and more preference to programmers from this Eastern European country. This is a popular outsourcing region in general. Our research shows that 40% of American employers prefer to hire remote developers in Eastern Europe.

In brief, Ukraine’s IT industry is currently in active development. In the chart of the world’s best developers, Ukraine is in 11th place (out of 50). Ukrainians share the Western mentality and work ethic, which results in high-quality work. But, due to the lower living costs in Ukraine, salaries are not as high as in Western countries.

On average, a Ukrainian software developer earns about $35 per hour. These prices heavily depend on specialization and other factors, such as the city a developer lives in or the platform they are looking for orders on.

For the sake of making this paragraph sound less generic, here are the hourly rates Lemon developers work for:


$45-$85 JavaScript

$50-$90 Python

$50-$85 Ruby on Rails

$55-$90 Golang

$45-$80 PHP

$45-$80 .Net

$50-$85 Mobile Development

$55-$95 Blockchain

$55-$95 AI

$55-$95 Data Science

To us, it looks like if you hire a Ukrainian Python developer, you can save quite a lot of money without sacrificing the quality of the final product.

  • What do Python developers do?

    Most Python developers are responsible for writing Python code, handling troubleshooting issues, and using Python-based frameworks for creating web applications and programs. In addition to this. Python developers’ zone of responsibility comprises design, deployment, and bug search. As a rule, this web developer is responsible for the back-end, i.e., server-side of the programs or applications. Some specialists in this field can help organizations with their tech infrastructure and the general ecosystem. To make a long story short, Python developers create applications, design frameworks, and websites, and develop new Python-based services.

  • What are the skills required for a Python developer?

    Broadly speaking, some skills a decent Python developer is expected to have are common for all web developers (no matter what language or framework they are proficient in), and some are specific to the Python language and the related infrastructure. Let’s untangle this question together. 

    Python developers are…

    • Experienced in Django, Flask, and event-driven programming;
    • Actively employing the machine learning potential of Python;
    • Understand and can employ server-side templating languages (like Kid or Maco);
    • Acquainted with concepts of object-oriented programming;
    • Employ code-versioning tools (like Git) in their daily working routine;
    • Well-versed in back-end programming and can use HTML5, CSS3, and JS.

    • Proficient in the English language (at least on a professional talk/writing level);
    • Perfect at problem-solving;
    • Extremely attentive to details.
  • Is Python good for developers?

    Yes, Python is an extremely popular dynamic-typed programming language, and its popularity is gaining traction with time.
